Established in 2007, the Arnold Rim Trail Association (ARTA) is a group of community volunteers who work collaboratively with the Forest Service at the Hathaway Pines District Office to construct and maintain the Arnold Rim Trail as a one-of-a-kind Central Sierra Nevada recreational and educational resource. Working together, ARTA and Forest Service engage with local agencies, homeowners, and business associations. ARTA is under the umbrella of a local non-profit organization named Foothill Collaborative for Sustainability and can receive tax-deductible donations.
